Michael Craig presents the third in this 25-part series about the lives of the producers of American musical theatre.
This week: Zlegfeld (part 3)
BOB HOPE: 'He was a very classy man. All he thought of was getting the most beautiful girls, tne greatest talent, and how can you go wrong? '
BEN OAKLAND: 'At the Ziegfeld Theatre he had a private office that he could open and none would see him. He could look down on the stage, and suddenly a voice would say " You fourth girl from the left, your seam is crooked ".'
RANDOLPH CARTER : ' He was quite a Hitler and he insisted also that the songs be written Immediately. Ziegfeld had trouble with everyone.'
